A form of godliness, but denying the power thereof… (2 Tim 3:5) Paul predicts that perilous times will come when “men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud blasphemers, disobedient to parents,
I fed you with milk and not with solid food; for until now you were not able to receive it, and even now you are still not able. (1 Cor 3:2) The church in Corinth
“Dweller in a valley, the son of Eliphaz and grandson of Esau” (Gen. 36:12; 1 Chr. 1:36); the chief of an Idumean tribe (Gen. “36:16). His mother was a Horite, a tribe whose territory the” descendants of Esau had seized.
“A tribe that dwelt in Arabia Petraea, between the Dead Sea and” “the Red Sea.

They were a pastoral, and hence a nomadic race.” Their kings bore the hereditary name of Agag (Num. 24:7; 1 Sam. 15:8). They attempted to stop the Israelites when they marched “through their territory (Deut. 25:18), attacking them at” Rephidim (Ex. 17:8-13; comp. Deut. 25:17; 1 Sam. 15:2). They afterwards attacked the Israelites at Hormah (Num. 14:45). We read of them subsequently as in league with the Moabites (Judg. 3:13) and the Midianites (Judg. 6:3). Saul finally desolated “their territory and destroyed their power (1 Sam. 14:48; 15:3),” and David recovered booty from them (1 Sam. 30:18-20). In the “Babylonian inscriptions they are called Sute, in those of Egypt” “Sittiu, and the Amarna tablets include them under the general” “name of Khabbati, or “plunderers.”
